Whether you have suffered an acutely debilitating injury at work or a severe long-term tropical illness, Accident Advice Helpline can help you determine liability and your eligibility to claim.
What can I claim compensation for?
Every compensation claim is calculated on an individual basis, as all accidents are unique to a certain degree. With this is mind, it is never possible to instantaneously provide victims of personal injury with an exact compensation figure.
Why? The level of compensation is typically calculated to cover financial costs or losses, in addition to any reward given for the injuries, illness, harm and distress you have experienced. The effects of injury or illness are different for every personal injury victim, and as such all claims for personal injury compensation are handled on an individual basis.
Yet, no matter the nature or severity of your accident, your claim will always be intended to cover these two fundamentals:
- Reimbursement for financial costs and losses
- An award for immediate and long-term physical or psychological effects
Am I eligible to claim compensation?
To claim compensation you must have been involved in an adverse incident within the last three years and as such sustained an injury or illness. You must also be able to prove that you are not responsible for the accident that caused your injury.
If you meet the above criteria and if you are able to support your claim with evidence to suggest liability and medical documentation, it is likely that you will be eligible to claim personal injury compensation.
As previously stated, however, all personal injury claims are unique and therefore to determine liability and your eligibility to claim, it is always best to speak with a specialist, such as a member of our legal team at Accident Advice Helpline.
